Cross Country Fences at Camperdown | An Eventful Life

Cross Country Fences at Camperdown

The cross country course at Camperdown is renowned for requiring fit horses due to the hilly terrain and may be a good warm-up for Greenwich Park! The 2012 course was built by Wayne Copping, was a length of 3600 metres, speed of 570 mts/min and optimum time of 6 minutes and 19 seconds.

 

Thanks to Will Enzinger (and friends and dogs!) and Cross Country App www.crosscountryapp.com, here are some close ups of 3* fences on the course at Camperdown Horse Trials last weekend

 

       Mandatory Dog Inspection of Fence (New rule by the FEI)

 

       Fence 12 AB

 

 

       That FEI Rule again - this fence requires two dogs to inspect

 

 

       FEI Officials checking on the dogs' work

 

       Special "no wellies required"water jump dog official - also trained in underwater checking

 

By the way, just in case, the FEI rule thing is a joke (late April Fools!)
